Ever wonder if the mostconsumed staple called Rice, is sufficing the growing number of yourneighborhood, barangay, or municipality? What steps do the authorities make toensure the sufficiency? when there is a problem in the sufficiency of Rice,there would be an economic disruption. Economic exchange is troubled and thetarget consumer is 100% affected, offering them limited supply with a highcost. How does all of this attributes affects the food stability/security? LGUor Local Government Unit is a part of the government which is said to be closestto the people and is in charge of delivering basic services and facilities toits constituents. 1 The Hierarchy which: The Barangays are under theMunicipalities, and each of them has their own divisions of departments,specially Department of Agriculture who provides the details of the Rice cycles.
In our previous question how would simple local leaders of our small barangaysbe forewarned, be informed of the state of their Rice Food Security? Ligao,a municipality in Albay, having 55 barangays, a municipality that has a totalland area of 24,640 hectares, where 23.05 percent are fertile flatlandssuitable for planting and the 76.95 are mountainous terrains. The economy isbasically agricultural planting crops and etc.
The municipality has alsoreached the 7th most populous city/municipality on region Vaveraging of 111,399 inhabitants. Weconducted a research about their awareness of their current Rice Sufficiency intheir municipality, and the response was: Less than of the barangays does accessthese information, and barely of them knew of any data about thesesufficiencies, and rice statistics, Whereas the Municipality is supplied withtheir own Department of Agriculture division of the state of their sufficiencyenabling them to make a decision on what move they’ll make in attainingsecuring, ensuring this rice sufficiency state. Weas researchers are urged that, we wanted not only for the municipality to haveaccess to this kind of information, but also the small units of the LGUhierarchy, to be able to assess and analyze the Food Security of rice in eachof their own.
Therefore, the researchers proposed the project: LGU RICESUFFICIENCY FORECASTING SYSTEM where itwill provide an analysis, and prediction of possible outcomes that will helpthe said LGU’s in assessing the situation of Sufficiency and creating anefficient decision to answer the Security of Rice.
